Football Punter Wins £10,772.50 from £5 Bet on Eight-Fold Acca
YES, it’s another of those winners that looks so easy when it’s been done. Why didn’t we think of that!?
This time a genius football punter managed to land an eight-fold acca with Betfair which collected a staggering £10,772.50 from just a £5 stake on Wednesday night’s matches.
The Winning Acca
With not too many games to choose from across the Champions League and English Championship, the bettor perfectly selected eight match results at a mega 2154/1.
- Antwerp vs Shakhtar
- Newcastle vs PSG
- Red Star vs Young Boys – draw
- Dortmund vs Milan – draw
- Leipzig vs Man City
- Celtic vs Lazio
- Coventry v Blackburn
- Sunderland vs Watford
And incredibly, it looked down and out before the late kick-offs had even got under way when Shakhtar were 2-0 down at half time in Antwerp.
The Ukrainians fought back incredibly well having been the outsiders before kick-off to score three goals in the second half to complete a sensational turnaround.
The drama didn’t end there though, with FOUR 80+ minute goals helping secure the acca later in the day.
Manchester City regained the lead in Leipzig thanks to an 84th-minute Julian Alvarez strike, with Jeremy Doku adding a third later on.
Coventry beat Blackburn 1-0 thanks to a Haji Wright goal in the 85th minute, while Crvena zvezda snatched a late draw against Young Boys with an 88th-minute strike.
With a draw predicted between Dortmund and Milan, alongside comfortable wins for Newcastle in their sensational demolition of PSG and Sunderland in beating Watford, one game stood between this punter and £10k.
And that came at Celtic Park, where the hosts had led earlier in the game through a Kyogo goal before Lazio hit back before the break.
Celtic thought they’d won it with 10 minutes to go, only for VAR to rule it out. Then Celtic did what they seem to do best in Europe by chucking away a decent result at the death, with ex-Barcelona star Pedro nodding beyond Joe Hart in the 96th minute.
Despite some big wins on the night, it was this punter who was the biggest winner with this incredible punt.
